Plan change to music shutdown
We're keeping today's one fairly short.
We somehow got Novus working with Lavalink.py - music is back up.
A few days ago, I announced that Nevira Music will be shutting down. After reconsidering, I thought this wasn't really necessary, so I'm announcing the plan change to the shutdown.
Also Groovy shut down recently so let's take a moment to pray for the fallen legend.

Why we're continuing Music

When I announced the shutdown 4 days ago, it was in reaction to Groovy's shutdown. I decided to follow its path and be a responsible developer and shut Music down. However, after reconsideration, I came to the conclusion that this wasn't necessary.
After remembering that Nevira Music had URL playing capabilities, I decided to limit Nevira Music to URLs instead of allowing YouTube and SoundCloud links, as allowing these services could result in C&Ds, which is why I decided to shut down Nevira Music as allowing these services could put me in risk of legal issues.
And by putting my nv!viruscheck knowledge into play, I can make the attachment music file be played instead of an URL.
Therefore, we're happy to announce that Nevira Music is back (with a catch)!

What was the point of the shutdown then?

Because I didn't realise this earlier, resulting in me deciding to shut down Nevira Music.

How can I play YouTube content then?

We know YouTube links probably account for ≥99% of the links used in Nevira Music. It will be a pain in the butt for most people by limiting such services, but it's the best we can do.
If you somehow manage to have the file for the music you want to play, we recommend you make the bot play this.

What's changing?

We know how much you want to play those YouTube videos on Discord. But we also have stuff we need to follow. To balance both, we have decided that:
  • Nevira, SnakeB and Natalia will not have music removed,
  • Heroku/Europe node will be restarted,
  • YouTube support will be dropped by early 2022,
  • SoundCloud support will be dropped by Mid September,
  • Music will be locked to audio URLs only (not YouTube, SoundCloud, etc URLs), and
  • You will be able to upload music that will be played.

What changed?

As of 21. September 2021,
  • Music on SnakeB and Natalia is now functional again,
  • Heroku/Europe node has restarted operation,
  • SoundCloud support has been completely dropped,
  • You are now able to upload music that will be played, and
  • Using YouTube/SoundCloud will now show a warning.
